The Fabrication Lab supports the Faculty of the GSD as well as students enrolled in the courses they offer. Staffed by three full-time employees and over 70 graduate students, Lab resources are available to students during the Fall and Spring semesters on a daily basis. Beyond the academic terms, Faculty research investigates a wide range of topics, making use of resources across the Lab. Maintaining a priority for safety, basic training is required for all users; more advanced training is also available to researchers and Lab employees.


  • Fabrication Lab Re-Opening - As the first phase of re-opening, the Fabrication Lab will be accessible to faculty for research, including course preparation.
  • GSD Response to COVID-19 - The GSD's new webpage for COVID-19 will be an important resource for our school over the coming weeks.
  • Cross-Registered Students - Students enrolled in GSD-affiliated courses who are from outside the GSD (e.g. Harvard College, other Harvard Schools, MIT) must contact Lab Staff in order to gain access to Lab resources and training.
